Brown Sugar Pecans

Who doesn’t love that sugary vanilla smell wafting through the baseball stadium?  And who would ever think that it came from the sugared nut stand?  Well here is a great recipe for you to try at home in the offseason, and if you don’t like nuts, it will still make your house smell amazing.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of tightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • About 2 cups of your favorite type of nut, or why not try a mix!

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, cloves in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, beat the egg, water, and vanilla.  Add your nuts to the wet ingredients bowl and stir them around so they are well coated.  Next, transfer your nuts to the dry ingredients bowl.  You may want to mix your dry ingredients in a bag so you can just shake the nuts around.  This method makes less of a mess.  Transfer the mixture to a greased foil covered pan and spread out the nuts.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  You should keep a close eye on your sugared nuts because they are quite easy to burn, especially pecans.  You should check the even every 10 minutes or so and stir up the mixture.
